Hello All, After spending a rediculous amount of time on my router table pushing device I finally decided it was time to complete it and get on with my life. http://bit.ly/cj0InC Brian p.s. After having read the one sentence above I realized that it was funnier than the entire post at the link above. To be completely honest, tonight’s post was not my best effort. If you are interested in reading a really mediocre post, then by all means, click on the link. But know this,...
I just finished another trivet. I made it from plywood and got the pattern online. It took me about an hour and a half to make. I find the best way to make something like this when you have a pattern is to glue the pattern with a spray glue onto the piece of wood and then when you’re done cutting it out you can use a hair dryer to heat it up and then it just peels off without leaving any marks on the wood. I will post pictures soon along with the hope cross.
Well guys,Let me start off by saying I have always admired old tools. There is something wonderful about holding a tool that a great craftsman may have used to make extraordinary with furniture a hundred years ago. Combine this with my new fascination with hand tools and I knew it was only a matter of time before I tried my hand at handplanes. It started out with the Veritas apron plane, which led to many ebay purchases. I have to say I could not have dreamed of a better finnish than these...

I thought it was about time I posted the completed project. With help from my Son we grunted the machines up in place. They look good, & work real well. The pedestals are good, & solid. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ It’s sure nice not to have to bend over to load, & unload now. I edited this on 02/05/2011 I changed to stationary non-swivel casters, but after that I had the problem of them slipping side to side on the sm...
I am still in consideration of making a woodworking website, since I am well versed in web work…and wood work. Please understand, this would not be anything like LJs; it would be more of a resource/reference/news site. The possible exception is a forum, but just about every community website must have one. I think this niche is under served – with the possible exception of Fine Wood Working – but you need to be a member there to get any of their articles. I won’t...
The local museum I volunteer at has just acquired a microscope, late 19th or early 20th century. Unfortunately the box for it is in a bad state of repair Hence the elastic bands holding it together and the damaged veneer on the top. Well the curator has asked me to repair the joints, clean it up but don’t repair the top. This is because the authenticity of the object would be lost. Heres the inside Plenty of cleaning and a little repair to do here. I’ll probably be t...
They say that there’s nothing like practise to make you better at a skill. My cousin’s wedding is in June, and I decided in my new wood working glory to make a wedding present for them. After consulting my wife, we decided that building a clock would be a nice gift. So I spent some time searching the project archive here on LJ’s, and around the web. Saving pictures to the hard drive so that I could go back and forth to choose without having to bookmark the various pages t...
